Still no trial one year after Troy quadruple homicide
December 28, 2018 01:07 PM
One year ago this week, Troy police discovered one of the most gruesome crime scenes in Capital Region history. There still hasn't been a trial, so NewsChannel 13 is following up.
Four people, including two young children, were slaughtered inside their basement apartment at 158 Second Avenue in Lansingburgh.
With police applying a full court press, it was just a matter of days before Justin Mann, 24, and James White, 38, were in handcuffs.
Joe Ahearn, Justin Mann's defense attorney, says the delay is caused by the case's complicated nature.
Among the many issues being dealt with: search warrant legality, identification testimony and police interrogation methods, to name a few.
Ahearn also says they are waiting to hear back on a motion that would try the two defendants separately.
Ahearn expects a trial in March or April of 2019.
